Monday With Bruuks: Fall Colours Ride to Tyrone

Monday, September 27th, 2010

On Saturday a few of us rode from Peterborough to Tyrone, battling a nasty headwind, where we fueled up on Apple Cider Donuts and Red Pepper and Garlic Cheese Curds before heading back home. Not even a broken chain could stop us.

Ride Bikes. Play Music.

Brian Macmillan was talking about doing this very thing at some party we were at last spring. The good news for Brian is that he doesn’t tour with a cello. Brian. Set this up, I am in.

Really excited one of the fellows in these edits is riding a Surly Big Dummy . . . But really, what other type of bicycle could you possibly strap a cello to?

My Summer With Lance.

Monday, August 9th, 2010

Lance Armstrong has a lot of stuff going on right now . . .

According to this Associated Press article; “Armstrong clearly appears to be, at the very least, a person of interest”, within the latest Pro Cycling doping investigation.

I’m no Fortune Teller, but I would say the rest of Lance’s year might be a bit busy. — regardless if he rides Leadville or not.

Before this whole Grand Jury business gets rolling, I would like to reflect on how Lance and I spent our 2010 summer together: We were in Rotterdam, I had just finished an espresso, he was just beginning a 3642km bicycle race.

Thanks Lance. Those .4 seconds were magic.

Picture 4

It looks like someone is hunting for a new book deal, this old book is useless.

Landis, who was stripped of his 2006 Tour de France title for doping but had always denied cheating, sent a series of e-mails to cycling officials and sponsors acknowledging and detailing his long-term use of banned drugs, the newspaper said.

. . . Landis detailed extensive use of the blood-boosting drug EPO, testosterone, human growth hormone and blood transfusions, as well as female hormones and a one-time experiment with insulin. He said the doping occurred during the years he rode for the U.S. Postal Service and Swiss-based Phonak teams.

Since you have all been keeping up with this year’s Giro d’Italia, you have probably already seen this.

Cadel Evans recently won a miserable stage of the Giro . . . The resulting pictures sum up everything I tend to love about watching professional road racing.

I mean, look at this:
